Answer:  ESCAPE GOAT

(Until I realized there was no D, I thought the first word might be scaped.  I know it’s not really a word, but that’s how my wife pronounces escaped!  None of today’s clue words are new, however three of the jumbles appear to be.  We’ve definitely had “gimsat” before.  I love the word “stigma” though.  It’s a simple, but powerful word.  The answer letter layout was an excellent jumble!  It reads like some town in the southwest.  Pecos Gate, New Mexico?  Cute cartoon.  Who doesn’t like talking animals?  In the distance you can see the faint visage of one said billy-goat!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Love has no uttermost, as the stars have no number and the sea no rest.”   —   Eleanor Farjeon

(A nice poetic line, from a poet who appears to be new to the Cryptoquote.  I’ve got to be in the right mood to *enjoy* poetry, as I’m a very simple man.  I couldn’t figure out this last name to save my life.  I was extremely surprised to find that she was English, as the last name sounds about as British, to me, as Ndamukong  Suh sounds German!  I was also frustrated in not being able to learn “Farjeon”‘s origin and/or meaning.  Has the end of net neutrality already come into play???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
